People are very friendly.

    I have been working at TripAdvisor full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The actual job roles available in Oxford are pretty good but there is a massive disconnect between benefits and office facilities in the UK and the US. Bupa medical and Cigna dental cover

    Cons

    US employees have masses of discount and perks available which aren’t available to UK staff e.g. flight and hotel discounts, IATA discount card, loads of local discounts etc Employer pension contribution only 5% Holiday entitlement is only 25 days per year with no option to buy additional days like most other tech companies (especially in Europe) Snacks used to be really good and on par with other offices but have now been reduced to chicken feed style dispensers to save money Oxford office is looking very tired compared to London and most staff think it’s because it’s going to close soon

    Growing quickly. Good work life balance. Takes care of their employees. Lots of interesting things to work on. Great transparency with quarterly all hands meetings.

    It's a large company with some legacy code. Takes time to get up to speed and you definitely have to be self-motivated.

    Pros

    Employees are smart Engineer cares about work and quality

    Cons

    Been with Tripadvisor since it was at Needham. It was a very positive experience the first couple of years, but since then, things have been deteriorating. It could be because of stock falling, from high above $100 down to $30 some at some point, Tripadvisor has become more tense and cautious. The motto the last few years have been 'cutting overhead'. That so-called 'overhead' leads to following effects: team downsized to half (many lefts but not many new fillings) but double up the works, snacks got cut down (even got rid of the paper cup on all of the upper floors), a handful of reorgs. When I started working at my current position, I realized the culture at Tripadvisor has not been better either. For one, Tripadvisor doesn't invest much in the employee. There weren't much of the training. For example, unless it's directly applied to the individual existing works, request for attending conference most likely will get turned down. Over the last 6 years, I haven't got to attend one single conference. Transparency at Trip hasn't been at it's best compared to other companies. For instance, employees have submitted questions but never get answered. At townhall, there is generally only a few minutes for addressing a few questions. But one thing that has gone the wrong way above all is the management. I've literally witnessed company letting the good employee go instead of working to keep them. If management wants you to go, they will make things difficult for you so you can quit yourself. If management thinks a team does not add value to their own agenda, they let the team slowly dying on its own instead. There are good management, so it depends on which you joined, but CoreX eng management is not one
